Pillow {Talk} Swap...Received!

I received the most amazing pillow from the Pillow Talk {Swap} on Flickr a few weeks ago, but I'm just now placing it in our newly-painted nursery!

This awesome piece of work came from "Little Miss Shabby"! I love the color scheme and hexagon choices...her embroidery is to die for!

Go ahead and be jealous of this cutie pillow! ;) xoxo

More from the World of Illustration

I've been hurrying to complete projects as my due date quickly approaches for baby boy #2.

While there has been a lot of sewing going on, I've also been up to my eyeballs in some illustration projects. I wish I could share more, but for right now, I'll give you a hint that one project involves fabric design for someone else and another is some possible book illustration...I couldn't be more excited about these opportunities!
I CAN share what Kerri and I have been up to lately as she is getting ready to set up a new website for her fabric shop, Sew Deerly Loved. Kerri has had all kinds of positive words to offer as I joined the quilting/sewing community, so when she asked me to design some graphics for her new site, I was more than excited.

Here is the latest "Little Red" illustration that Kerri asked for. (In the appropriate colors of red, pink, and aqua, of course!). She will be offering this design (minus my shameless plug text) on fabric very soon...you can visit her blog for a glimpse.
I would love to make some additions to my etsy shop, Pocketful of Pinwheels, in the near future. Would you like to see something specific? I've been tossing around the idea of fine art prints and notecards for awhile...what would you like to see??

Pillow Front

Okay, my super awesome partner has received HIS pillow from the Pillow {Talk} Swap on Flickr...here's a peek at the front. I had the coolest partner, John of Quilt Dad, so I wanted to think of something "manly and fun"...

I whipped up a swatch of Spoonflower fabric that features John's new family pup, "Tula". She turned out to be just the right size for little hexie sewing. Now you know why I was so reluctant to show the front ;) Little Tula would have given away the surprise!

We're off to see "Gordon" from Sesame Street in-person tomorrow at our PBS Kids in the Park day....Titus is super stoked to "meet" Super Why! (If you have a toddler, you probably understand this completely, right?) Happy weekend, all!

Pillow Talk Swap

My pillow is finished for the Pillow {Talk} Swap....someone tried to claim it as his own...silly carebear...
I'm going to have to wait to show you a good shot of the pillow front, because it might give away my partner's identity...so I'll share after they receive it :)
Our garage sale was rained out today....I guess I needed to be doing other things anyway!
Happy Saturday! xo
